Why is there no thread on the Michigan Reps saying they are not going to flip the vote for Trump?

Or am I just missing it?

President Trump’s effort to stop key states from certifying Democrat Joe Biden’s election victory hit a hurdle on Friday after two Michigan lawmakers he had summoned to the White House said they saw no reason why the state’s results would change.

Mr. Trump insisted Friday that he won the election but took no reporter questions at an event on drug pricing. Later that afternoon, he met with Michigan state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield at the White House.

In a joint statement after the meeting, the two lawmakers said they “have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan’s electors, just as we have said throughout this election.”

They said they had used the meeting to make the case for Michigan to receive additional federal funds to fight Covid-19. They also walked the president through the election-certification process in the state, according to a person familiar with the matter. The president didn’t pressure them to assist in his effort to block the vote from being certified, the person said.

I wish they'd flip him the bird.

I would love to know how that conversation really went.

The key word in their statement is "yet"

The Pennsylvania delegation just got an invite to travel to kiss the ring.

While uncharacteristically strategic for 45 to get all of his ducks in a row before striking, that appears to be what's happening.

They are not going to because they can't, if they could have done it they would, because Republicans are EVIL.

They played it well.

They had to go to keep the Trumpists at home happy.

But then when they got there all they had to do was say "Nothing we can do. The law is the law and we can't change it."

Added points for claiming they were trying to get extra Covid $ for Michigan, which will play well with voters.

They’re no fools. They know there’s no way he’s going to win and they’re not going to tarnish themselves doing his dirty work.

Why should we celebrate people doing what they are supposed to be doing?

^ LOL, as Chris Rock says, "Whaddya want, a cookie?"

Because, OP, there's a dedicated thread chain to the 2020 Election, and these news go there.

by Anonymousreply 9Last Friday at 3:22 PM

yes OP, please find the latest hysterical Treason Is The Reason For The Season thread and post there, you’ll find obese old gay men with poodles in there but make yourself at home.

The poodles are usually names after silent film stars R10

Hence the separate post.

I will never trust any republican. I’ll sleep easier on December 14th.

They threw in that “intimidation” line for a reason

Reminder: these are the same people who want to impeach Whitmer for her covid response. They don’t give a damn about the pandemic

by Anonymousreply 12Last Friday at 5:22 PM

These two gentlemen in particular R12?

Or some crazed militia types?

by Anonymousreply 13Last Friday at 5:24 PM

What happens if they never do?

If we thought the MI Dems were tough, wait until PA Reps try to fuck over PA voters when guys like John Fetterman and Malcolm Kenyatta are waiting for them.

by Anonymousreply 15Last Friday at 5:28 PM

The PA AG, Josh Shapiro, is a hot daddy pitbull of a lawyer. If those legislators went to DC they would not get off the tarmac before he started prosecuting them. PA is going to Biden.

I suspect the PA guys are going for the same reasons as in R5

(BTW, do we actually know they are going, or did Trump just invite them?)
